CSS Import Test - Test 73


This test is a stress test. It has an alternative stylesheet that will take over five minutes (5*60=300 seconds) to download (whatever the connection you have!). This is performed using a small script.

You may wish to see sample output from this script (which will take five seconds to download).


73a. Rule at top of five minute stylesheet.

73b. Rule mid way through five minute stylesheet.

73c. Rule at bottom of five minute stylesheet.

How to decide if the browser has passed

  1. If test 6 is unstyled, then browser does not support this kind of linking and is a maybe (M).
  2. If the browser does not display this page, or at least not before 5 minutes had elapsed, then this browser has damaged the feature (D). This is because it is horrendously stupid to block access to the page until a file which will not even be used by default has been downloaded! (I am open to suggestions for rephrasing that last sentence...)
  3. If test 6 above is green, and this page has displayed fine, then the browser has passed (Y). Eventually, 73a, 73b and 73c will be able to be turned green using the alternate stylesheets UI (unless your browser times out, or something). This is not particularly important.
  4. For bonus points (!Y!), check whether the browser downloads the alternate stylesheet at all. If it only downloads it when you request it (as opposed to when you visit the page in the first place), then major kudos points are deserved.
